Its special features include

The Chromogen heat pump has a modern and stylish appearance that easily suits a current contemporary home design. The cylinder has a once piece streamlined shape that has a mounted compressor. The tank is also wrapped with a condenser coil that prevents the water from contamination. It also had a built-in frost protection mode that protects the condenser from icing, this include a 25 P/A air outlet pressure that enables the ducted flueing up to 5 metres in length. It has a new tech power outage memory as well as an outdoor LCD screen/cover and an auto-disinfection function that is able to prevent any growth of bacteria.

How the system work is that a fan draws in air containing heat energy across the evaporator, the evaporator then turns the liquid refrigerant into a gas. The compressor pressurises the refrigerant into the hot gas where the compressor heats the coil inside that heats the water. It is then when the refrigerant reverts back to a liquid after heating and the water continues to evaporate and the process starts again.
